Dawn Van Zant Editor Investorideas

I am the founder and editor of; a female pioneer in the financial markets sitting in every seat as a trader, a broker, IR and PR before finally starting my own site. I have been personally featured in interviews in Business Week, CNN Financial TV, CBS Market watch radio and other financial publications online, radio and print, talking about renewable energy, water and homeland defense stocks.

My story/our story

My entry into the financial markets began at the age of twenty at Wolverton Securities. I was interviewed by admin and then by the owner and founder, Newton Ellis Wolverton. I had no experience or knowledge of the stock market but I boldly went to the interview for the job of a 'desk trader'. I didn't even know that that was.

I had several interviews with Newton and he went the extra mile for me calling my boss at an IGA store in Northern Ontario and getting my high school records. My career in this industry is all due to him taking a chance on a young girl that he decided to hire as the first female trader at his firm.

Newton Ellis Wolverton, died in the mid-1980s leaving behind an amazing legacy and I am honoured that he bet on me.

From Wolverton I worked as a trader at several firms including Jones Gable and then Osler, where I was a Canadian/US trader.

I then took my experience and transferred it to the other side of the desk and worked for several IR/PR firms before starting my own. has been in business over 20 years now and is a predominately female run business. We reflect basic values of working hard and going the extra mile for our clients and the individuals that use our services.

After all, it all began with someone going the extra mile for me...

I have met a lot of interesting characters along the way and observed this industry transform massively, especially from a regulatory perspective.

I am excited to be part of the next evolution of this industry, with my daughter and son working at my side.

Watching this next generation shape the future of the investment community to reflect their social and sustainable values and issues, is one of the most exciting changes I have been part of.

I am also a published children's author. (No More Night Mares) (I Sea Horses) (Bradford and the Journey to the Desert of Lop)

I am on the Board for One Spirit Non-Profit, a collective of Oglala Lakota and volunteers from around the globe, working hand in hand for the Pine Ridge Reservation community. We support the Lakota community by providing resources that allow them to meet the needs of their people according to their own culture, traditions and values. We proudly think of our organization as a group of people who exchange friendship and our programs are designed to foster individual connections. As much as possible, sponsors and donors connect directly with the residents of Pine Ridge
